President Barack Obama

Dear President Barack & First Lady Michelle Obama...

Not a single, public, living monument exists, commemorating children from underprivileged or middle-class backgrounds, who have achieved graduating high school or completing an equivalent  degree – against all odds.

I am embarked on a lifelong project which focuses on:

  • Inspiring children, of all races and ethnic groups (especially underprivileged), to strive to complete their basic education;
  • Making adults aware of the value of our youth – our first and last hope for all humankind.
In order to accomplish this, it is my desire and intention to build the first Spiral and public monument "America – The Spiral of Hope" in our Capital, Washington DC. The structure symbolizes, embodies and immortalizes the spirit and accomplishment of  striving children throughout our nation – capturing and displaying on porcelain tiles, their expressions of hope, pride and self esteem, and thereby offer inspiration for children in all places to “risk to dream and triumph” – to unfold their intellectual wings and soar.

The installation of these structures has a second purpose, to visually awaken leaders and common man to the realization and understanding that it is our children who will become the real positive, future Change Makers™ , who will pull mankind out of poverty, environments of prejudice, redirect us away from roads to hostility and unnecessary, senseless ambition for power and domination through violence and wars.

The nurture of our children and their education must become mankind's primary ambition, directive and global achievement.




In addition to this petition, please share and make others aware – your family, and all friends on social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) Request their help and ask them to support this effort and Project.

Also, get involved yourself. Contact your local Teacher’s Union, Teachers, political leaders, other educators, citizens of prominence, corporations, et al. and ask they take action and/or support this Project and Petition.

Let's make it happen. Let's get our leaders to build the first Spiral, and then a Spiral in every State Capital. You can also help by joining here. Show your support by joining our community...Take action:

Thank you,

Christoph - Founder

America -- The Spiral of Hope

Dear Change Makers & Petitioners...

I am seeking your support to reach and gain the attention of The First Family and your political representatives through this petition – so that they may take action to gain funding and build the first Spiral "America – The Spiral of Hope."

Also, join our community -- it further serves as a Petition of Action to the Office of the President, your State Representatives, Governors, Mayors, other political leaders, people of prominence and corporate America to fund construction.

By joining, you are showing your support for building the first Spiral in our Capital City, Washington DC. Once that goal is accomplished, each state will be motivated to follow. No further action or commitment on your part is required.

But, please spread the word; ask family, friends and young adults to join. Let's make it happen – inspire all children:

Thank you for your support for Project - The Spiral of Hope.

Christoph – Founder
